Toyota camry: I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. When it rains hard,

Customer Question

I have a 1997 Toyota Camry. When it rains hard, she will not start. I used to have a neon that did that and, i think, I sprayed the distributor cap with camp dry and that took care of the problem. I don't think the camry has a distrib cap. What can the problem be and can I spray that with camp dry? Karen

Hello...welcome and thank you for using Justanswer.
Is this camry a 4 or 6 cylinder engine ?
If you have the 4 cylinder 2,2 engine , most likely the problem is coming from moisture over the coil pack and spark plug wires ,I would recommend replacing the wires and spark plugs if not replaced lately and then spray the coil pack and the new wires.
If you have the six cylinders ,I would check for spark and fuel when the engine is not starting ,you can also scan the engine computer to see if any trouble code comes up.(will need scanner or code reader to do so)
Good luck.
Please rate my answer if I have helped.
Let me know.
Thank you very much.
